Fudgy Black Bean Brownies
(A NO FLOUR BAKING RECEIPE)
2 cups cooked black beans or canned no-salt added or low soduium black beans, drained
10 Medjool Dates–Pitted
2 TBS Raw Almond Butter
1 tsp Vanilla
1/2 cup natural, non-alkalized Cocoa powder–I needed to add 1/2 cup of your favorite sweetner as my cocoa is unsweetned.
(I use stevia, agave or coconut crystals)
1 TBSP Chia seeds
I also added some unsweetened shredded coconut (and plan to try some chopped almonds another time)
Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.
Blend the black beans, dates, almond butter and vanilla in a food processor or high powered blender until smooth.
Add the remaining ingredients and blend again. Pour into a very lightly oiled 8×8 inch baking pan and bake for 1 1/2 hours.
Cool completely before cutting into small squares.
